Welcome to College Station

In 1871, a site was chosen as the home of the new Agriculture and Mechanical college. Students riding the train would be let off at the "college station" instead of stopping in Bryan. When a post office for the university was opened in 1877 it took the name of College Station. It was not until 1938 that the town was finally incorporated as College Station, Texas. College Station is home to the main campus of Texas A&M University, one of the premier universities of Texas. In 1997 the George Bush Presidential Library opened in College Station.
